    I'm going to buy another microUSB cable, and hopefully that will fix the problem. Are the stock cables known to fail?

    This is interesting. Might just be the case for you, but who knows? This could be the problem we are all having.

    Keep an eye on things and let us know how the new cable gets on.
    Where did you get it from by the way?

    I made the mistake of getting a rocketfish CHARGING ONLY cable (who makes a usb cable that doesnt do data and charge? seriously.) and I matched the micro to mini convertor together with an old mini usb cable I had laying around.
